Detailed Summery

Mario teleports in the middle of Hindrance Lane in front of 3855 Hindrance Lane San Diego Ca. His home. He is bloody and beaten and limps his way over to his door. He lost his keys and his powers are acting up so he blasts the door off. He makes his way upstairs to his comfy bed and falls sound asleep the second he lays down. It’s only seconds before Henry Carter calls Mario and tells him that he has found out what Gambit is looking for. The Dreamer’s chest.

Mario steals his neighbor’s car and goes to his Warehouse, but not before driving the car into the ocean so no one can track it. He drops off his Metal Bracelets and gets a few objects to help him in his battle against Gambit. The books of Merlin, Mario’s compass and Mario’s Map. He gets in his 1978 Pontiac Trans Am and goes to the airport. He soon learns he lost his wallet and gets in a fight with an angry man in line behind him. Mario makes short work of him and takes off, following the compass till it leads him to his The Stratton apartments. Home to his ex-wife, Jessica O'Conner and son, Jon O'Conner. He spots his son and his friends hanging out, he watches for a while till he spots his ex, the love of his life and he takes off. He ends up going to Sal's Mansion to ask Sal Gregory for a favor. He leaves his compass with him for safe keeping and he hops on Sal’s Private Jet and goes to London to meet up with Henry.

Mario and Henry learn that the Dreamer’s Chest is in Greece in the Davelis cave. Henry turns out to related to Davelis. Once at the cave they split up, Mario dives into the water to swim to where the chest is hidden and Henry goes off to search for Davelis treasure. A Guard Dragon, one of the last left is guarding the chest and Mario has to slay him in order to find the chest. He tries to swim back with the chest and almost doesn’t make it. He is saved at the last minute by Henry but has to go back for the chest. While he is getting the chest Henry takes off. Mario tracks him down and learns that Henry betrayed him to Gambit in exchange for helping him find the cave. Mario kills Gambit’s men but almost dies in the attempt, getting the chest and escaping at the last second. Gambit kills Henry for the trouble.

Back in San Diego Mario hides the chest in Morgana’s followers cave that was used by one of Morgana’s lackey. He heads past his son’s apartments one more time and is caught off guard by Gambit who has Morgana’s talisman left over from his days of working for Morgana. It allowed him to teleport back to San Diego and block Mario’s powers. The fight is a hard one and Gambit comes out on top. Mario destroys the talisman and uses the last of his power to unload his memoires of the chest into his son Jon’s head. Gambit kills Mario and learns of Jon’s existence.
